What do you already know that you don't need to research? Like what's your actual hobbies and interests instead of looking up any of the things you listed? Just say what you actually like and not pretend to be someone else.

politics
jobs
sports
hobbies
science & technology
philosophy
psychology

a good conversationalist should know how to interact. ie verbal and nonverbal communication. be aware of someone else's emotions, desired, and interests. theory of mind. and not be wierd, but to be different in specific and positive ways.
